Sample Messages on Hold
Placing a Client on Hold provides the perfect opportunity to:
- Enhance your business image
On hold messages are the first point of contact for many of your customers, so maximise this opportunity by offering an on hold message that creates an overall impression of professionalism, great customer service, and product quality. On hold messages that aren’t engaging are more likely to cause customers to hang up instead of listening – so keep them on the line with an hold message that captures their attention.
- Promote new products and services
Keep customers up-to-date with your business’ new products and services in your on hold message. This opens up new advertising avenues to promote products and services directly to your customers, keeping your customers informed about the latest developments in your business.
- Decrease customer hang-ups
You’ve worked hard to get your customers to engage with you and your business – so don’t lose them at the first stage of connection. Engage and keep them on the line with information that is relevant, such as amazing product and service descriptions, and creative messages that captivate customers’ imagination – this will help to decrease the possibility of a hang-up.
- Improve customer engagement with your business
Improve customer engagement by making the on hold message all about them, such as sharing ways they can connect with your company e.g. social media and newsletters – and the benefits of doing so e.g. discounts and referral programs. By promoting engagement with your customers you encourage loyalty, which is likely to generate into sales, repeat business, and referrals.
- Boost your sales
On hold messages is a smart way to sell a product or service directly to your customers by using it to showcase key products and services that they are likely to be interested in.

You will be the first who knows when the system shuts down
With the HTM System you can set the time and date of your messages or music.
Messages average 15-25 seconds in duration, with a 6-10 second gap. This means the customer is not bombarded with too much information in a short period of time so they “switch off” from your message. Instead, the message is designed to keep them on the line and listening.
Music changes with every second message, keeping your on hold messages fresh and updated.
